1930's Dress Pattern Band Trim and Pleat Detail Bust 40


Model: ds978

$58.00


Vintage mail order sewing pattern 2047 for Misses' Dress is uncut and in original folds.
Dress features inset trimming bands and inverted front pleats.
A unique detail that I have not encountered before are the "repressed plaits" on either side of the front bodice, just above the trimming bands. These are formed by extensions on the front section and the side/front sections. Most likely to allow fullness in the bust area.
The dress can be made with revers and a V neckline or with a rounded collar. Short sleeves with cuffs or long straight sleeves. Side placket for closing.
Bust Size 40; Hip 43. No waist measurement provided.
Pattern pieces are in excellent, sturdy and supple condition.
Instruction page is sturdy, age toned and has one edge tear.

Unprinted pattern pieces, precut to size. No traditional envelope/sleeve since this was a mail order sewing pattern.
